Let's Applaud Georgia
Those on our regular subscribers
list do not see the network of our national J.A.I.L. leadership. Sometimes we
like to lift the curtain and allow you to peek in. Below is such an occasion in
which we wish to share with you our successes. The following are the words of
Army Captain Dennis M. Hatcher (Ret.), the head of our Georgia State J.A.I.L.
We trust you will be as thrilled as we are with Georgia J.A.I.L.'s
Dear GA. Jailers,
In spite of last minute reservations, the [Jan. 23rd] press conference and rally went off
well, and we were able to meet 95% of our objectives! No one else from
JAIL but Kimberley Brown showed up, and she earned her weight in gold! The
best part is this: I was able to pigeon-hole Rep David Lucas like I had
wanted (it was reported he was not there, but low and behold I caught him
walking down the stairs behind me, as if God put him in my path!). I
introduced myself and gave him my J4J spiel. I said we had to put the
power of the judiciary back in the hands of the people, he said "I don't know if
we can do that, but we can't continue doing business as usual." Guess what he
did?...he invited me to speak at the next Judiciary Committee meeting! I'm
arranging it with his secretary. Kim introduced me to one of the senior
senators, Joe Burton, who came right out of chambers when Kim paged him!
We talked and he's on our side!
My short speech was taped by channel 11, FOX 5
News, GA Public Television, and 2 others I was unable to identify. I was
interviewed by V103 Radio and I passed out nearly 100 J4J cards.
Many folks were impressed by my JAIL jacket sent by
Sherree from FL and they LOVED the concept of judges in jail, literally! I
was stopped 4 times inside the Capitol by people wanting to know what those
letters meant and when I told them, they were ecstatic. Each knew of someone, or
themselves, who have been victimized by the system. Dozens more watched me
and looked at the jacket. Two of the TV camera men actually walked behind
me and got shots of the big yellow J.A.I.L. logo! I'm telling you, this
was an exciting and wonderful trip. So very productive in such a short
time. Kim and I stayed as long as we could, But we were both exhausted by the
time 12 noon rolled around!
I'll fill you in more later. I really have
to rest now. We did good!!!
